New York Charles Scribner's Sons 1904 Hard Cover Good 
474 pages, frontispiece (portrait), cloth, rebound, ex-library with usual library markings, text very good. From the Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition: John Brown Gordon, 1832-1904, U.S. public official and Confederate general, b. Upson co., Ga. Gordon began his Civil War service as an infantry captain and so distinguished himself through four years of campaigning in the Virginia area that at Lee's surrender he was a lieutenant general commanding a corps. His fighting in the Wilderness campaign and in the Shenandoah Valley under J. A. Early in 1864 was particularly brilliant. After the war he became an outstanding leader in Georgia politics. With Alfred H. Colquitt and Joseph E. Brown, he dominated the state government for many years. He was U.S. Senator (1873-80, 1891-97) and governor (1886-90). Despite charges that he mixed politics and railroad affairs, he remained the idol of his state.

Military's highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions at the Second Battle of Rappahannock Station. Morrill was raised in Williamsburg, Maine. In 1861 the age of 20, he enlisted as a sergeant in Company A, 6th Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiment. A year later he was commissioned as an officer in Company B, 20th Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiment. He was promoted several times, ultimately to lieutenant colonel. He mustered out on June 4, 1865. Medal of Honor Citation: "At Rappahannock Station, Va. , November 7, 1863, this officer, then captain in the Twentieth Maine Volunteers, and on duty with skirmishers in advance of the Fifth corps, learning that an assault was to be made on the enemy's fortifications by troops of the Sixth corps, those present called for volunteers from his own command to unite with the storming party. With those volunteers, some fifty in number, he joined the Sixth Maine regiment and charged it. The enemy's works were carried with bayonet, four guns, eight battle-flags, and 1,300 men were captured, and Captain Morrill was specially mentioned in the official reports of the Corps and Division commanders."

138 Henry, Robert Selph 'First with the Most' Forrest

558 pages, maps, cloth, DJ, very good. From the Wikipedia website: "Nathan Bedford Forrest (July 13, 1821 - October 29, 1877) was a lieutenant general in the Confederate Army during the American Civil War. He is remembered both as a self made and innovative cavalry leader during the war and as a figure in the postwar establishment of the first Ku Klux Klan organization opposing the reconstruction era in the South. A cavalry and military commander in the war, Forrest is also one of the war's most unusual figures. He was one of the very few in either army to enlist as a private and end the war at the rank of general. Forrest discovered and established new doctrines for mobile forces, earning the nickname The Wizard of the Saddle. He was accused of responsibility for war crimes at the Battle of Fort Pillow for leading Confederate soldiers in a massacre of unarmed black Union Army prisoners, but in the face of conflicting evidence was later cleared by the US Congress. After the war Forrest opposed Reconstruction policies and federal occupation by serving as the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and commander of the Grand Dragons of the Realms. In their postwar writings, both Confederate President Jefferson Davis and General Robert E. Lee stated the Confederate high command had failed to adequately use Forrest's talents.

123 pages, 4 plates, pictorial wrappers, very good. 7th printing. From the introduction: "No controversy ever evoked such emotions as the mutual recriminations between Northern and Southern partisans over the treatment of prisoners of war.

Throughout the war the complaints, the charges and counter-charges, and the assertions of criminal intent fed the raging fires of propaganda. " ; 123 pages

Iv, 296, [2] pages, full black leather, very good. Reprinted from the 1870 edition.

It thus preserves the authenticity of the original, including biographical errors and printing irregularities." ; 296 pages
